"Warranty and service contract management applications and platforms historically were an afterthought for many manufacturers, a cost of selling equipment or products," said Aly Pinder Jr., program director, Service Innovation and Connected Products Strategies at IDC. "As the experience economy enters the manufacturing industry, it is critical that OEMs see warranty and service contract management as another path to deliver customer value, and not just a way to contain costs."
